Murphy’s Triangle Update from Councilperson Shepherd

This was received from Councilperson Shepherd in reference to zoning changes in Murphy’s Triangle.

Greetings:

Many updates have been made in terms of the Murphy’s Triangle zoning. Since draft conditions were not ready for the July 9th ZRB meeting, Councilmember Sheperd would like to give the community MORE time to read over the proposed conditions.

 A NEW draft can be seen here – Draft Murphy Triangle District Conditions 07 10 2012. The REDLINE version shows changes proposed by the City of Atlanta Planning and Law department. Some of the proposed conditions weren’t allowable by City Code or state law. Other rationale has also been outlined.

Please read the attached draft and feel free to forward.

A special ZRB meeting will be held on August 23rd, 2012 to ensure that members of the community have a chance to provide input to the Murphy’s Triangle zoning recommendations.

The new timeline for community input is as follows:

  • July 17th; 6:00pm; Place TBD

A community meeting is to be held by Councilmember Sheperd to get all final comments on the draft conditions as edited and reviewed by the Office of Planning

  • July 19th; 7:00pm; NPU S Meeting

The NPU S community will have the opportunity to formally vote on these changes

  • August 13th; 7:00pm; NPU X Meeting

The NPU X community will have the opportunity to formally vote on these changes

  • August 23rd; Special ZRB Meeting (Zoning Review Board)

A special ZRB meeting will be held to discuss this issue for a formal vote

Please review the changes and plan to attend the July 17th to speak about the NEW draft as proposed.

The City of Atlanta will also have a formal response on the two parcels/businesses that had requested to be excluded from these rezoning efforts.

If you have any additional questions, feel free to contact the Office of Councilmember Joyce M Sheperd.

Murphy’s Triangle Details

Murphy's Triangle
Click to enlarge

For those that don’t know, Murphy’s Triangle is a large plot of land that borders Adair Park, Capitol View, Sylvan Hills and Oakland City. This area is one of the six areas targeted by the Atlanta Beltline as an economic development area. It is currently zoned I2 (heavy industrial) and the desire by City Councilperson Joyce Sheperd is to move it to I1. This is a departure from the eventual desired Mixed Use, but that is still in the eventual plans further down the road.

Why is this important? One, this borders Adair Park. Two, the affected NPUs are voting on this in their next meetings. Ours will be July 9th at the next NPU-V meeting. That is unfortunate, since due to the holiday our next Adair Park Today meeting is not until July 10th. So, adding as much information as I can here and asking that you read through it and attend the NPU-V meeting if possible. The meeting will be held in Adair Park.

Here is a post from Capitol View’s website about the move. It seems as though the move to I-1-C will keep a lot of the types of businesses we want out (junkyards, landfills, waste handling, etc.) and allow for retail, restaurants, etc. It will also lower the decibel level for businesses and help keep some of the historic buildings. Not to mention, Pirkle Recycling, the owners of the metal scrap heap seen from Metropolitan near RDA, owns over 20 acres back there. We don’t need another junkyard!

Here are four documents that provide more information:

  • map of the affected area
  • guide for some of the conditions proposed with the move from I2 to I1
  • Pages one and two of conditions proposed by NPU-S and Oakland City

If you have any further questions, please contact Jay Melton at president@adairpark.com. If I can’t answer your question, I will find someone that can!
